Guide: Our governance

Our Rules

As a co-operative, the co-operative values and principles are enshrined in how we operate. Our Rule Book provides the foundations of our governance practices and is supported by our standing orders and other procedures.

These are the rules that govern what Co-operatives UK does, how it does it and the relationship we have with our members... and that our members have with us.

To become a member your co‑operative must support the purpose and objects of Co‑operatives UK and agree to accept and abide by the Rules of the Society. To view a copy of our rules, download them from here, or you can telephone 0161 2141750 to request a paper copy.
